Maharashtra Congress leader Balasaheb Thorat: "I feel that he (Uddhav Thackeray) should've faced the trust vote, but he gave his farewell speech at the end of the Cabinet meeting. 
"Uddhav Thackeray is a sensitive person with a simple nature. He did not like a few things, so he resigned.
"All our MLAs were present for the trust vote today. But now the next strategy will be discussed in today's meeting (at the Maharashtra Vidhan Bhavan). There's no dispute in Congress regarding the name change of Aurangabad to Sambhajinagar," Thorat said. 

The Floor Test that was convened by Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari was challenged in the Supreme Court by the Shiv Sena. 

The apex court, however, declined to stay the Floor Test and in its observation said that the floor of the House was the only way to settle these issues of democracy.

Minutes after the order by the top court, Thackeray addressed the people of the state via social media in which he announced his decision to step down as chief minister and as a Member of the Legislative Council.

The announcement brought an end to the political crisis that erupted in the state for over a week with a faction of Shiv Sena MLAs revolting against him for joining hands with NCP and Congress to form the government.
